Portsmouth are waiting on the fitness of Reeco Hackett ahead of Tuesday night’s clash with Wanderers.

Hackett missed the 4-0 win against Cheltenham at the weekend after picking up a back injury in training.

Ryan Tunnicliffe, Michael Jacobs, Ronan Curtis and Louis Thompson were all on target for John Mousinho’s side against the Robins.

Hackett has made 36 appearances for Pompey since the start of the campaign, scoring five times in total.

But Mousinho has admitted he isn't sure if the wideman will play a part against the Whites.

“He picked up a back injury in training on Friday morning. It just stiffened up and so I’m not sure if he’ll be available for Tuesday,” he told the club’s website.

Pompey sit 10th in the League One table at this stage – 12 points behind sixth-place Derby, who have played an extra game.

“The first 45 minutes is the best I’ve seen us play under my tenure – and probably as good as you’ll see in League One this season,” the manager added.

“It wasn’t so good after the break. We got a bit sloppy and that allowed Cheltenham to apply some pressure. But it can be difficult to sustain those levels when you’re 3-0 up and overall we’re really pleased with the performance.

“We moved the ball well in the first half and were brave in possession, making it very difficult for our opponents to get to grips with our shape. The lads were supporting each other, not keeping possession just for the sake of it and providing options. We mixed things well.

“To come away with a 4-0 win and our centre-forward hasn’t scored – although, of course, we’d have liked him to – is important.

“When I came in it was clear that we didn’t have a lot of goals from midfield or wide areas and that’s so important, so we need to keep focusing on that. It shows the lads are capable of playing like that – and against a side who took Plymouth all the way earlier in the week.

“Things will change on Tuesday, but it instils some belief in them and we’ll keep reinforcing the positives. We want to maintain those standards.”
